Good food and good prices. IT's a quaint old fashioned dinner from back in the day. Staff is friendly and welcoming.

This diner is an icon in the area. You can get a complete lunch or dinner (including dessert) for under $7. The food is good, tasty and the pie and shakes are to die for!!!

We were in town touring the Frank Lloyd Wright Bradley House and stopped in Blue's Cafe for lunch based on the reviews. We both ordered patty melts. Chili was hearty and delicious. Salad bar had lots of options: pasta, goulash, Mac salad, coleslaw, bread pudding. But the pie! Oh, the pie! I had a slice of butterscotch. Real whipped cream topping. Buttery, flaky, melt-in-your-mouth crust. Husband enjoyed the apple crisp with a scoop of ice cream. Also very good. Reasonably priced and family-run.

Based on the TripAdvisor reviews, my wife and I ate at Blue's last night. We were "on the road" and wanted something more interesting than "chain" food.
This is an old diner. You feel like you are back in the '50's. The food was pretty good and inexpensive. The servce was good.
The crowd was "old". I'm 64 and felt like a youngster. It was kind of funny.
I'm glad that we went and would recommend it.

The nake is how uyou feel sometimes when you eave, Blue becuase yu were not satified. At tmes they knock it out of the park but miost of the times, the service is marginal at best. HOwever, I have been there at times where they treat you like royalty. Oh and BTW, the food i great! Thats why I keep comiong back
